    It's not a question of dirtiness, really (though it really is.) Why take a shower and then put something against your skin that has all of yesterday's dirtiness on it?

    A dress shirt should be crisp and fresh. Dress shirts start to look "worn" by the evening, let alone a second day of wearing. When I put on a shirt in the morning, I want it to feel fresh and crisp and completely un-wrinkled and unworn, not smelling slightly like yesterday's cologne or looking slightly droopy and less sharp than a clean, ironed one.

    Why is Nationality mentioned on this thread?

    Gentlemen, I do not understand this behavior. Please keep in mind that many members from diverse nationalities including the one you cited visit this forum. Is it so hard to be respectful?

    Thirty included weekend shoes for suitings. If we're limiting ourselves to weekday wear perhaps half that many but I like shoes and fifty pair are not enough.

    two brown slipon (monk and punched cap)
    two black slipon
    four black oxford (semi-brogues, velts, cap toes, and stitched cap for example)
    two dark brown oxford
    two medium brown oxford
    two tan oxford
    oxblood oxford
    two suede oxford

    This thread sounded interesting but then I realized it was all about business attire, which I know absolutely nothing about. I think I own one suit but it was given to me like 6 years ago and doesn't fit anymore. Anyhow, since this thread seems to have turned into a question of cleanliness, I have a couple other items I'm curious to the #'s of: - boxers/briefs (and for people who wash their jeans and t-shirt after just walking a couple blocks to the corner store, do you throw these out after a use or just wash them immediately?) - bottles of cologne It seems to me the only real benefit of washing after one use is you won't wear a dress shirt on a date (a couple weeks after the last time you wore it) only to discover a stain or mark you didn't notice was there when you put it on [​IMG] A friend once said to me he wishes he a pair of pants for every day of the week for 2 weeks. I think if I combine all seasons I have that...but I'm afraid I'd be at the low end of the scale among people here on the forum.... :cry m

    i wash my clothes after each wearing. the only exception to this is jeans, which i might wear 2 or 3 times between washings, assuming i wasn't running around in them.

    nationality came up in this thread because americans have a perception that french people rarely bathe. there's also a rumour that germans wear the same underwear for a week before washing it.

    perhaps some of the european members can enlighten us.

    Some on this forum, Ernest, have accused you of gratuitous insult and of diverting threads. Fortunately, this is not the case based on the above quote, as it is evident that you were speaking to the keys on Thracozaag's piano and meant nothing personal to the pianist.
